Another Rude Photog!

Hi Guys

We were finishing off a wedding outside the Church yesterday doing what I call congratulations and I think you call the processional and was about 4' from the bride and groom filming the guests in a line doing the hugs and kisses thing. There was a second wedding scheduled at the Church and the videographer came in without any fuss. However the photog had parked and was dragging his case on wheels and barged between me and the couple and actually his shoulder hit my camera and skewed it off to the left!! What an inconsiderate idiot!! Not even a "Sorry people, I wasn't watching where I was going" ...he just pushed thru, upset the couple, the guests and the videographer (plus hitting my camera with his shoulder too)

The videographer for the 2nd wedding is a really nice guy so I certainly hope he didn't have to put up with that sort of attitude for the rest of his day!! Can't vendors have just a little bit of sense and walk around an event where they can see something is happening???

Re: Another Rude Photog!

Sounds like an absolute pr!ck.

Hate people like that ...

Guests knocking my camera and not apologizing is bad enough, but another 'professional' is just taking the mick to be honest.
